    Maybe one day The B-52's will get a proper and a much deserved remasters of all their music. This 5 disc set does not have it......I just don't understand it.

      This set does not include new remasters -- these discs are sonically identical to the US Warner Bros CDs that came out between '87 - '89.
      Each disc is packaged in a sleeve with the album cover on the front and a cropped version of the standard CD's tray card on the back. The sleeve for Strange Planet is an exception; it's back cover is the back page of the standard CD's booklet for whatever reason.

      The set includes no booklets, gatefold covers or inner sleeves but it's still a great set for those who've never gone beyond a compilation and need these albums in their collection.
